Fast, friendly, yummy

Huge plates of food at great places are served quickly with a friendly smile. Service is attentive and the special chicken chilli was really good. Would recommend for families and friends and hungry people.

We get a trip from McFuzzlebutt's Manchen (blog) that this was a great place for a late dinner and headed there after a late sporting match. Service was lovely and friendly, food came quickly and was very tasty. The duck was awesome!

Been here many times now, and the one thing you can say about East Taste is that they are consistent. Good food each and every time we've been, and one of the few on Gouger St to stay open well into the night. Their shallot cakes are always excellent as an entree' as is their tea smoked duck for mains,... More

Was recommended to us by hotel receptionist after we had arrived too late for hotel restaurant. It was past 11pm when we arrived at East Taste but were welcomed warmly. Highly recommend the black peppered kangaroo fillet. Arrived on a sizzling skillet pan, billowing steam and fragrant smell. Very, very tasty indeed.

I haven't eaten here for a while, but the food here is really good. 5 of us ate here, including 1 vegetarian & loved it. They also offer BYO at about $10 per bottle. Michael the owner is a very good host & is more than happy to choose some dishes for you, which is what we usually do.

Love this eatery at breakfast time - you can really sense the hustle and bustle of the CBD mornings! Food is really delicious here, and their juices could not get any fresher. However, I wish their prices weren't as much!

This reasonably priced restaurant provides a welcoming smile from the owner Michael, suggestions on good food choices and great food and tonight was no exception. The specialty f the house that always receives rave reviews is the Honey King Prawns that we order without fail. The Chili beef is also an exceptional dish but diners can choose from a comprehensive... More

Frequently go to East Taste. It's the place to go for a quick, cheap eat, any time of the week (that rhyme was not on purpose - but it's catchy, yes?) Best salt and pepper tofu, BBC and shallot pancakes. My partner and i always eat vegetarian there, because they have plenty to choose from.
